Boys in Education

Like many teachers I have observed boys falling behind in school. Every class I have had my most difficult students have been boys. I have started to do a bit of reading on this myself. As a psychology teacher one of my favorite topics to teach is about Phillip Zimabardo’s prison studies. So I was very interested when I saw he did a Ted talk on this exact topic-The Demise of Guys.

Please watch these two videos about the demise of guys. Very interesting stuff.  I have also included a trailer for an upcoming documentary exploring American masculinity.
